Happy 4th birthday! What a difference a year makes!

It has been a long while since the last post.  Jadon has been mostly home since being discharged in February (with several fainting/near fainting spells, two 911 calls and three short hospital stays) but the last few months have been much better.  He is progressing well, gaining strength, stamina, vocabulary and mischief!

Today Jadon turned 4!  We had tears in our eyes when we remembered his last birthday.  Of all the children, only Rykauna joined Sara and I at Sick Kids to celebrate Jadon's 3rd birthday as he was lying in bed in the ICU once again only 3 days after one of his cardiac arrests!  The other kids just could not bear the thought of seeing Jadon in the ICU yet again.

Today, everyone was all smiles.  Jadon knew his birthday was today and this morning he 'made' himself a cake out of kinetic sand and put on a candle.
This evening his eyes were full of sparkles as we sang happy birthday to him and he got to open a few gifts.

Here's to many more birthdays with this wonderful bundle of joys and smiles!
